Noah Rothman on Fox News
Watch: ‘There’s Precedent’
for Oprah’s ‘Racism’ Remarks

Mediaite, by Matt Willstein

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 8/17/2013 10:15:11 PM

Mediaite’s Noah Rothman joined the panel on Fox News Watch Saturday, leading off a discussion about Oprah Winfrey and race, in light of the media mogul’s recent remarks about Trayvon Martin and experiencing racism in Switzerland. Picking up on themes from a column he wrote earlier in the week, Rothman said there’s “precedent” for Winfrey tying claims racism to projects she’s promoting, with this week’s example being her high profile return to acting in Lee Daniels’ The Butler. “This is something of a precedent,” Rothman told host Jon Scott. “It just kind of comes right before she’s promoting a project,

Jase Robertson of Duck Dynasty was kicked out of a New York hotel in which he was staying after being profiled as homeless. Which was worse, his treatment or Oprah´s? He laughed, she bitched. The MSM bought hers, Americans loved his.

She drew attention to herself like a whore, making fake racists claims, and in the next breath she pushed her movie. sounds like obama learned her good.

Okra may be super wealthy, but she isn´t happy or healthy. She is morbidly obese, ugly inside and still black on the outside. I truly believe black people do not like being black. They dislike themselves.
And did I say she is also a racist?

Have you noticed that ever since BO became pres. every black, whether famous or not, is coming out of the woodwork screaming racism for any perceived slight.

I do not have any facts, but I suspect that discrimination law suits have also increased. And the media wonder why black unemployment is so high. Who would risk highering them with the possibility of be labeled a racist and getting sued.

"Every black", #8?

No, I haven´t noticed that "every black" is screaming racism any more than I´ve noticed that "every white" is being racist.

Those who were what they were are still being what they were, and some who were not are allowing themselves to become one or the other of those things

What I´ve noticed, "since BO became pres.", is that there is a more concerted effort than ever to divide Americans and pit one group against another. It breaks my heart to see it working. I pray we open our eyes and fight against it before it destroys everything we have overcome throughout my lifetime.

"The good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth what is good; and the evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth what is evil; for his mouth speaks from that which fills his heart." Luke 6:45

"Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. Proverbs 4:23

Satan uses all sorts of things to cause men to fall into his trap. Skin color is just one of them.

This story also ties in with this week´s Obama-rodeo-mask "outrage". Bottom Line: The burden of their race is only as onerous as they choose to make it. In these incidences, those two are leveraging race to further their own ends.

I doubt much of it is truly coordinated, but too many liberals in show business, politics and the media feel compelled to discuss "racism" and to allege racist acts where they don´t exist. The result, of course, is to imply ugly intent, thus further dividing all of us between those who are deemed tolerant (the ones who are doing the speaking) and those who are assumed to be red-necked ignoramuses (the rest of us).

Andrea Tantaros did a good job yesterday of explaining the difference between "prejudiced" and "racist". She said most of us are prejudiced in that we prejudge individuals for all kinds of reasons, very few of which are racist. The words aren´t interchangeable.

Excellent comments, #9. Racism isn´t created but it can be magnified by the hustlers.

Oprah made her original fortune by pandering to a largely white audience. Talk about biting the hand that fed you.

I refuse to see "The Butler" because of the presence of Hanoi Jane Fonda. I am definitely prejudiced against America-hating communists. Oprah being in a the same dud movie is merely a bonus.

We didn´t need Noah to tell us what we already know. That Oprah will play the race card to get her way. And to promote her own self-interest, in this case her new film.

As someone wrote, she has kissed her phony "I relate to you middle class ladies" schtick goodbye. Once and for all. I suppose that´s some sort of progress in her evolution toward her own truth.

Read that the move is a ´big´ hit. Checked out the ratings on Drudge. It made $8 million opening night. That´s it. It´s not a big hit at all but I guess if enough people say it, maybe they can lure a few more dummies in to see it.

$25 million for an opening weekend is chump change. Go look at the ratings for any Harry Potter or any Twilight movie and you´ll see a "big hit" movie. By next weekend all of the race moaners will have seen it and the ratings will be abysmal.

Have whining movies plugs ever worked ?
Does anybody want to hear racist innuendo from the formerly most successful woman in live TV ? Maybe she´s trying to take the heat off of the sentenced criminal, Jesse Jackson Jr. Maybe she´s trying to fill in, cover for, other very unpopular, disgraced, race baiters, Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton and Barry Soetero. To continue their agitating communist baiting, they need her help. Imagine all of this contrived media attracting garbage over a %35,000 handbag.
It didn´t even happen in America where the robot racism trick always works for our TV news actors. Imagine trying to create any kind of racism scene in Switzerland, a far off world we cannont contaminate ..... and phony racism over a stupid $35,000 handbag. Like Bill Maher, desperate enough to say anything for attention.

Oprah´s all about "Oprah". Her fawning audience for all those years made her feel omnipotent. She should know that everybody, ´worldwide´ is not going to bow down to her like most do here. She´s gotten way to big for her bloomers and now she´s got ´em in a wad.

Oprah, get over yourself, and stop sending my husband your magazine to which neither of us subscribed. The ubiquitous photos of you throughout the pages and ´always´ on the cover are very tiresome. Yes, we know you´ve got a lot of money, Oprah. Big deal.

I seriously doubt this movie is or will be a big hit. The reviews are lukewarm and the subject matter is not appealing to the young, movie-going audience. What we are seeing is the PR machine trying to pump it up. I predict it will be gone from theaters by the end of September.

´ was channel surfing the other day and she was on The View. It seemed like it was race day as that is all they discussed. Lenny Kravitz was even in on it. Race issues seems to be the whole essence of Oprah´s being. She talked non-stop about race, poor abused black people, how she bravely escaped racist Mississippi, promotes black people causes only. She enjoys dragging out the 60´s dirty laundry, the sit-ins at Woolworths. She said, "My mother was a maid, my grandmother was a maid and my great grand mother was a SLAVE". Ahhh, crying in her cheerios, gee I hope she gets over it. Remember she opened a girl´s school in Africa and banned white girls. What an example she sets-not.

Where the wide girth black woman, Oprah, blew the use of the race card was where she used it and under what circumstances.
Over a 30 thousand plus dollar purse? Paleez!
If it were a simple meal in a southern cafe in Georgia it would be different but in Switzerland over an expensive purse. Sorry ´the Oprah´ that doesn´t bring sympathy your way.
A rich black woman on the search to be offended is no enjoyment to sit back and tolerate.
I hope now half the people she offended stay away from her movie and it fails. I thought I would like to view it but not now or ever. Forrest Wittiker can thank ´the Oprah´ for this bad promotion of the movie.
The nation is now sick of in your face blackism and Oprah Hollywood types.

My mother used to listen to Arthur Godfrey on the radio whenever his program was on. He was folksy, very popular and could make or break a performer´s career. Then he got full of himself, made self-important pronouncements on everything, and disappeared.

As for Okra (great take off on her name by one of the readers) she needs to keep marketing herself. Wasn´t she dissed a while ago by the Obamas? SHe wants back in the relevancy game.

I will never forgive 0prah for giving us the 0bamessiah and for rejecting the real Messiah and replacing him with her Religion of Oprah.

I doubt most people on this forum have much of an idea how effectively and widely she spread her New Age religion particularly over the year when she had her great evangelistic drive.

She said that the statement that "GOD is a jealous GOD" just offended her, and she knew that there had to be another alternative. Now couldn´t she have hired someone to interpret that statement for her? Maybe she could have paid an obscene amount for a purveyor of truth? But she wants to be a GOD-dess.

The Press are the only sector of Business in America specifically mentioned in our Constitution and singled out for especial protections.

When they undermine the United States they are guilty of Treason by giving aid and comfort to enemies foreign and domestic>/i>.

The Press makes its bread and butter off scandal and kerfuffles, rather than hard hitting investigation. They have not only abdicated their Constitutional role, they have dipped the Constitution in the sewer. By reducing their role to nothing more than damaging rags.

Oprah is a good example to us that it can be a blessing NOT to win the lottery. The richest woman on earth is not satisfied. She is overweight, yet starving for attention, starving for pity, starving to be relevant. She has replaced the truth of God with a lie of her own convenience and shaping. Yet she is restless. Centuries ago, St. Augustine penned this prayer: "Thou hast made us for Thyself, and our hearts are restless until they find rest in Thee." Such examples go on and on, whether it be the mayor of NYC, or a Hollywood persona, or a politician who doesn´t know when to shut up and go home.

Everyone in the world, except bilthering idiots, knows exactly what´s going on when millionairs and billionaires who are black cry "Racism". If racism is so blatant, how did those people become such huge 1% successes? Not thorugh the dismally poor black community alone- that´s for sure. The did not get rich by merely "being black"- except for race hustlers like Jackson and Rangle, and though they have big loud mouths and make the largest portions of the race news media, they are so few as to be counted only with the fingers of one hand. It´s nothing but a sham, like selling tulip bulbs in Holland or Sashay Cosmetics in lower middle class neighborhoods. It´s a game based on fakery and phony self shame.

DH and I were watching Fox about Okra (LOVE THAT by the way) and they had some black lib on. He said that---and this is a paraphrase, but correct--even if you have black friends, have never said the N word, and never done anything racist, you were STILL RACIST. So if blacks are stopped while driving black, I am racist by breathing while white.
These people don´t know history. The South began Jim Crow laws because blacks were shoved down their throats after the war. I fear for my lovely country that this war will have to be fought again.

BTW, the apple does not fall far...

Oprah´s mother, Vernita Lee, was sued by a Milwaukee store for $155,000 for unpaid bills in 2008. This high end fashion store has since closed.

Re #42´s comment on poster´s criticism of Oprah´s weight --

A photo of Oprah in Switzerland showed her and her companions inappropriately attired in too tight too thin knit clothing. We have had Oprah´s weight losses and inevitable weight gains paraded before us on television and countless magazine covers. I, for one, would be impressed if Oprah had the discipline to lose weight and take better care of her healh.

It´s not just carriage horse drivers saying neigh to plans for vintage cars tooling around Central Park. The Central Park Conservancy, the nonprofit organization that manages the city’s most famous greenspace, is coming out against a proposal backed by Mayor de Blasio to replace the horse-drawn carriages with replica old-time cars. Doug Blonsky, the conservancy’s president & CEO, told the Daily News that introducing the electric vehicles to the park would be a bad idea. “Forty million people visit Central Park each year, including runners, bicyclists, kids and dog owners,” Blonsky said Wednesday. “Adding vehicles to the mix will make the

Shortly after 1 a.m. Wednesday, a 19-year-old in a hoodie and baggy jeans was captured on a grainy black-and-white surveillance video urinating into a reservoir that slakes the thirst of Portland, Ore.’s 600,000 or so residents. (Cue the disgusted “Ewwwwwwwws!” right here.) But really, Portland Water Bureau officials, do you have to flush 38 million gallons of potable water for the sake of a cup or two of human urine? That’s how much the bladder comfortably holds, although the bladder in question obviously wasn’t comfortable. We get the fact that Beervana prides itself on its water supply. The water bureau

BISMARCK, N.D. — A federal judge on Wednesday overturned a North Dakota law that bans abortions when a fetal heartbeat can be detected, which can be as early as six weeks into pregnancy and before many women know they’re pregnant. U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland said the law is “invalid and unconstitutional” and that it “cannot withstand a constitutional challenge.” The state attorney general said he was looking at whether to appeal the decision by the Bismarck-based judge. North Dakota is among several conservative states that have passed new abortion restrictions in recent years, but abortion rights supporters called

After devoting 15 minutes to a Barack Obama interview in the last 24 hours, CBS piled on with another seven minutes devoted to a "scary powerful" top aide. Charlie Rose offered a puff piece on Alyssa Mastromonaco, Obama´s deputy chief of staff. The CBS This Morning co-anchor on Thursday offered no tough questions and instead repeatedly underlined just how important she is. Rose marveled, "You know what somebody called you? Scary powerful." The co-host narrated, "We recently spoke to her about her low profile, high power role. Every time I read a piece about you, it talks about power."

At the same Clinton Foundation-sponsored event Thursday where Chelsea Clinton announced her first pregnancy to the world, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton took a question from a young, 19-year-old woman who chose to publicly reveal her status as an undocumented immigrant. “That was incredibly brave,” Clinton told the woman after she shared her story. The woman, who introduced herself as Nova, got emotional as she told Clinton and the other people in attendance that she was an undocumented immigrant. Struggling through tears, she continued, “I want to say that it’s been extremely difficult for me

President Obama mocked Republican opponents of his health care law on Thursday, saying that they were going through the “stages of grief” and that critics should accept that the law is here to stay. “I recognize that their party is going through, you know, the stages of grief, right?,” said Obama during a press briefing at the White House. “Anger and denial and all that stuff and it -- we´re not at acceptance yet -- but at some point, my assumption is, is that there will be an interest to figure out how do we make this work in the

For more than 30 years, Hustler’s flamboyant publisher Larry Flynt has continued to send the monthly magazine to every member of Congress. Since 1983, Hustler has sent the porno mags in plain manila envelopes to every Congressional office as Mr. Flynt’s unique way of petitioning the government, National Journal reported. Congress tried in 1984 to stop the unwanted porn subscription, but the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia ruled two years later that the delivery of the magazine could not be stopped under the First Amendment. “Receiving Hustler once each month would not unduly burden a Member of Congress,”

President Obama said Thursday more than 8 million Americans selected a private health plan through his signature health overhaul, topping the most recent tally by a half-million people and offering the president an opportunity to blast Republicans for criticizing his efforts. “This thing is working,” he said, cautioning his law will not solve everything that ails the country’s health care system. He then openly criticized GOP lawmakers for trying to repeal his law. “They still can’t bring themselves to admit that the Affordable Care Act is working,” he said. Republicans say Mr. Obama’s enthusiasm is fleeting, because a portion of Americans

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes.

Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,

The cash infusion by the federal government is actually going to help the city pay pensions, even though they´re playing a kind of shell game with the money. As for "blight removal," perhaps they could start with city hall. Reuters: Michigan officials and President Barack Obama´s Administration are discussing a plan to free up $100 million in federal money to aid Detroit´s retired city workers, the Detroit Free Press reported on Tuesday. Citing two people familiar with the talks, the newspaper said the talks were centered around federal money flowing to Michigan for blight removal. Under the plan, $100 million

Climate change’s latest casualty appears to be fish — or more specifically, fish brains — as researchers say the carbon dioxide that’s being absorbed into the ocean is causing the scaly creatures to lose their survival instincts. In other words, the fish are losing their minds, The Daily Mail reported. The acid from atmospheric carbon dioxide seeps into sea waters, dissolves and ultimately lowers the pH balance, researchers said. The acidic waters then hamper the fishes’ sensory systems, so they’re not able to distinguish between smells any longer, the scientists went on. When the acid levels get really high, the fish lose their
